ZTE Z557
ZTE Z557

ZTE is one of the smartphones that cater to young people’s needs. The device comes with a moderate display size that doesn’t seek to compete with popular smartphones of the day as far as 2019 is concerned. The features of the phone show that the device is an entry level product.  As such, the smartphone comes with Android Oreo. It was released in the month of April 2019.

Design and Display of ZTE Z557

This ZTE Z557 phone is plastic body built but with a glass front. That gives the impression it is made for people who don’t have a lot of cash to spend. The phone does not have waterproof capacity and no fingerprint sensor.  Dimensions are 72 x 145.5 x 9.3 mm and the weight is 150 grams.

Other display features are IPS technology, capacitive touchscreen with multi-touch features. This device is 5 inches large with 480 x 854 pixels resolution, which is quite low. Display colors are 16 million and there is no secondary display at all. Furthermore, the pixel density is 196 ppi. No assurance there is display protection.

Camera Features

There are just two cameras in ZTE Z557. One to the rear and one to the front. At the rear we find 5.04 MP. Also, the front side of the Z557 has one selfie camera of 1.92 MP. The camera is fortified with HDR, while the video resolution 720p. Features also include auto focus, touch focus, panorama, continuous shooting, from this department.

Hardware and Software

ZTE Z557 is proven to be Android OS 8.1 Oreo and that operating system lives on a modified user interface. Can’t say if it will be able to upgrade to Android 10 in due course. In addition to that, there is Qualcomm Snapdragon 210, 64 bit processor chipset with Cores 4 processor, and a CPU frequency of Octa core ARM Cortex –A-7 is seen here which means that things are good at the performance, and the GPU is Qualcomm Adreno 304 on speed of 400 MHz.

Storage Capacity and Sensors

The storage is very poor at 1GB. Notice, please, that the RAM can’t be expanded. But on the internal storage there is 8GB which can be boosted with external storage medium such as memory card slot. However, on the other side, the sensors in this device are proximity, light, and accelerometer.

Network and Connectivity

ZTE Z557 mobile device makes it good as a 4G Android. That’s amazing; for I thought that it is 3G Android. Note that the smartphone works with the following technologies: GSM, HSPA, and LTE. Included are two nano SIM card slots to carry out connectivity operations. Other network connectivity components are Wi-Fi, hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, FM radio, USB 2.0, and headphone jack.

The price of ZTE Z557 starts approximately $115. But for availability, this smartphone is available and has been released in the month of April 2019.
